Suns out though, and the nieghbour has run out of things to mow and pressure wash and obviously can't think of anything else constructive to do so he's stopped making a fu**ing racket.

If he starts pressure washing his drive for the third time in 24 hours I'll start my open piped two stroke bsa bantam sprinter up and show him what a real racket sounds like. Mix the fuel/oil 15:1 too so it smokes like a bonfire too.

That'll really cheer the grumpy females up too. They love a house full of dirty two stroke fumes.

Happy times.


Hence why I've resorted to antique "jazz" mags :D

Took the starter off my S3 Landy, cause it didn't want to play, rebuilt it, put it back on and the clutch slave had locked up, quick bleed and now it's driveable. Ready to help me continue with some 'interesting' gardening tomorrow.

Working from home & buying stuff for the Z, CBR & MR2. I expect that my work demands are going to tail off as all our factories close

My Z1000 is coming out of the garage for a clean up, polish and a good going over this afternoon.
